Year 5

Class Teacher:
Miss Cooke

Welcome to Year 5!

We had a great Autumn half term in Year 5. A highlight, for many, was visiting the local war memorial as part of our History unit, “Who are our local war heroes?”. We have a busy half term ahead with lots of exciting and fun learning.

PE is on Monday and Wednesday. Please ensure that you bring the correct PE kit into school. This consists of a plain white polo shirt / white t-shirt, plain black shorts / black leggings / black tracksuit bottoms, trainers / pumps and a plain red fleece / red jumper / red cardigan.

Spellings will be given out on Fridays and will be tested the following Friday. I will also upload them to this page. The common exception words (below) are the spellings that your child is expected to know by the end of the year.

Please try to read at least 10 minutes daily with your child. Books can be changed when required. I would like to see your child’s reading record at least once a week.

Please come back to our class page regularly for updates about your child’s learning and if you need to contact me, please press the button on the right and start your message FAO Miss Cooke. Alternatively, contact the office and leave a message. I will get back to you as quickly as I can.

What are we learning?

In English…

We will continue to read The Nowhere Emporium by Ross Mackenzie. We will be using this gripping text to write for a range of audiences and purposes.

In Maths…

We are always consolidating prior knowledge. This term we will focus on multiplication and division methods. There will be a focus on factors, prime numbers, square and cube numbers too. As always, times tables are an important part of fluency. Please make sure that you are accessing TT Rockstars.

In Science…

Our unit in Science is ‘Forces’. We will learn about types of forces such as gravity, friction, water resistance and air resistance. The children will also learn about the
use of mechanisms such as levers, gears and pulleys.


In RE…

We will be deepening our understanding about how and why Christians read the Bible by looking at the importance and impact of the contents. We will also consider how important holy books are in faiths other than Christianity.

In Topic…

our primary focus is History. We will find out about World War 1 and the role of local war heroes.
